A mixed-culture of bacteria collected from a wastewater treatment plant in Brits, North-West Province (South Africa) biocatalytically reduced Cr(VI) at much higher concentrations than previously observed in cultures isolated in North America. Cr(VI) reduction rate up to 8 times higher than the rate in previous cultures was achieved by the Brits culture under aerobic conditions. Near complete Cr(VI) reduction was observed in batches under initial concentrations up to 200mg Cr(VI)/L after… CONTINUE READING
